Professions that involve physical exertion will entail risk of injuries unique to their demands. As a delivery truck driver, it is important for you to be aware of the types of injuries common to your line of work:
• Upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders Repeated exertion can lead to problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and cumulative trauma disorder from repeatedly performing straining physical activities

• Falls A simple fall compounded by the stress you face on a daily basis can make for considerable injuries

• Struck by motor vehicles Spending considerable time walking around high-traffic areas while focused on work places many delivery drivers at risk of being hit by other vehicles

• Vehicle collisions The amount of time that you as a delivery driver spend on the road makes you far more likely to be in an accident with another vehicle, potentially resulting in injury to you
